Cafe Rio Burritos

Oh baby!
All you need is this meat below and black or pinto beans inside of a 'homemade' burrito tortilla ... and heaven will appear. One burrito with about a cup of meat is enough for anyone. Then cheese goes on top of the burrito, broiled for a minute or two. Pour Creamy Dressing on top.

The Pork:
1lb. pork tenderloin---can use pork roast
2- 15oz. cans tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups brown sugar (it was too sugary for us...use less!)
1 can of coke
1 garlic clove, diced
1/4 cup cilantro, minced

Place all ingredients in Crock Pot on Medium for at least 4 hours ... we did 6 on low, great!

The Creamy Dressing --- (Iusually just half this)
1pkt. Hidden Valley Ranch Mix
8oz Salsa Verde Green Salsa (La Victoria brand)
1/2 bunch of cilantro wiht the stems
2 cloves garlic
3/4 c. mayo
3/4 c. sour cream
1/8 tsp. hot sauce – I don’t add this. . .
Mix in Blender. If needed, thin with Buttermilk

On the side:
The Rice (best ever! Carter loves this) -- I actually quarter this AND I put some in the burrito
8 cups water
8 cubes/tsp. chicken bouillon
2 tsp. cumin
4 cloves garlic
12 tbsp.butter
12 sprigs cilantro
4 cups rice

a random Guacamole recipe
2 avocados
1 t olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T cilantro
1/4 c chopped tomato
2 T chopped onion (optional)
1/2 t. salt
1/2 fresh lime juice
